Forever Fern Stripe Card

Forever Fern Stripe

It’s been a very chilled day, I have crafted, listened to music and sung along to  a mix of  modern country, Blondie, Kirsty MacColl, The Beautiful South, The Moody Blues and Suzanne Vega amongst others.

Loving this stamp set it has such great detail and of course the fact that the papers are a mixture of greens makes me very happy 😃

Today’s project from the Pinkies Weekend Retreat was a beautiful box card made with the Prized Peony Suite and designed by Kim Price. You can find her over at http://www.handmadebykim.co.uk/

When I first saw this project I thought there is no way I can make that, but Kim made it really easy and I was so pleased with how it turned out 😃

Until next time, happy crafting

Lovely You Card

Lovely You Card

Yesterday was a great day, my eldest daughter came up to visit from near Bristol. Four out of my five children and my two grandchildren met up for a socially distanced visit in my middle daughter’s garden. It was only for a couple of hours, but it was just lovely to see them all. I usually see my grandchildren several times a week, but because of lockdown I have only seen them a handful of times since March and some of those were just to wave to from the front door.  Unfortunately, my daughter goes home again tomorrow so it will be a while until we can do it again, but it put a great big smile on my face.

For this card I made my own background using the Lovely You stamp set and a mix of last year’s and this year’s in-colours

This card is a W fold, which I’ve not done before. It was a lot of fun to make and used the wonderful Boho Indigo Product Medley, which is now on my ‘must buy’ list  button_see-it-here

I will have another great project from the Pinkies weekend to share with you tomorrow.

Until next time, happy crafting

So many colour combinations I can make with this set. I was so worried about lining it up, but it’s not been too bad and such lovely flowers. Just love it 😀

Tomorrow is the Annual Catalogue launch event that I am doing with my Upline Debsydaisy. Now wondering why we ever thought it was a good idea. On the plus side with it being an online event there is no clearing up to do afterwards 😆 Wish us luck.

Until next time, happy crafting
